Houma Courier: Local forum to address coastal threats

Coastal advocates and public officials will meet Aug. 29 in Thibodaux to discuss ways Terrebonne and Lafourche can adapt as the Gulf of Mexico continues its march inland. The Coastal Wetland Communities Adaptation Leadership Forum will be led by America’s Wetland, a group that has pushed for solutions to help Louisiana adapt as wetlands erode, land sinks and seas rise. It will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Student Union’s Plantation Suite at Nicholls State University. Video from the forum will be streamed live at americaswetland.com.
